So we have seen the posts from brownpride.us generalizing what Mexicans think of Americans here:
http://www.city-data.com/forum/immig...osts-http.html

Well here is the reverse generalization:

Mexicans GO Home

Check out some of the beautiful images...

Mexico Drops Out Of 2008 Summer Olympics

President Felipe Calderón of Mexico has announced today that Mexico will not participate in the next Summer Olympics.

He stated, “Casi cada uno que puede funcionar, saltar, o la nadada ha salido ya del país.”

Translation: “Pretty much everyone who can run, jump, or swim has already left the country.”

Cuba soon to follow!

This is race baiting and offensive. I thought stuff like this was against the rules of Citi Data. Are you trying to encite some type of racial war on this board? Sorry it ain't going to happen becaue we are not racist as much as you want us to be. Seems to me you try to start things so you can say "Oh look at her, she made a racist statement. See I told you all people who are for enforcing the law are racist"


Not to mention the title-painting all Americans as Mexican haters-how nice. All you ever want to do is come on here and imply-directly or otherwise-that if we are for enforcing immigration laws then we are racist. Guess what we are not.

It said I needed to log into brownpride, so I've no idea what is being said over there.

As to the other blogs you pointed out......why are you surprised? There are always going to be *******s, and the vast majority of people (yes, even us anti illegal immigration people) do not give them any credence. At all. Not even a teeny tiny bit.
So, what can be learned here?
Racists are not going to like immigration legal or not.
However, a person can be anti illegal immigration and not be a racist, and can be for legal immigration all at the same time.
Amazing, huh?

How come there are long living threads that state the opposite?

I don't frequent that board- I frequent this one. You post this garbage-do you think you are being cute? Is this supposed to make newbies to this board think that all Americans feel this way? Yes we are all bigots.


Why would you post this-other than to try to do what I described in my post. Instead of debating immigration-illegal or illegal-it is always the race card and hate with you.

Um what you just said makes NO sense. Here we friggin go again. They are not MY CROWD. I have not protested the "Brown Pride" boards-I did not even know they exist. I protested this crap that Mach put with the title "What Americans REALLY think of Mexicans". If he/she is not trying to start problems then what are they trying to do.

Mach, calm down..this is juvenile nonsense. The joke about "Everyone who can jump, swim", etc, has been a favorite one among Mexican-Americans for at LEAST 25 years....The Mexican-Americans I've been privileged to know (and even the Mexican nationals) LOVE this corny stuff !! Like MOST ethnic groups, all of them like to laugh at themselves.

Don't even ASK me about "Mexican Judo"....I heard THAT one from a nephew 20 years ago (two of his grandparents were BORN in Mexico)...it's a GREAT joke, and caused a total belly laugh !...my son STILL mentions it on occasion..

Don't blame you for objecting to serious prejudice, or mean-spirited slurs. But honestly, this is 'kid stuff'. Call it 'stupid' or 'silly'...but not 'mean'...

PS I did NOT open the link.(I usually have bad luck with links)...if there's 'nasty stuff' there, I didn't see it. I'm only discussing the "Olympic" joke..

That board? It was discussed on this board. The link I sent you is this board discussing what Mexicans think of Americans..very generalized.

This I will say:

I have nothing against a Mexican (of any race) for simply being 'Mexican'; some are really fine people---------OTOH, the insolent attitude that so many of 'em have (especially coming from the illegals) is not acceptable here in the USA.

Hell; machismo is increasingly frowned upon in Spain these days........take the hint, Mexico and grow up, assuming your culture is truly Hispanic.
